The issue with the contact form was that manual changes to the contact
form view were made on the live server to disable the recaptcha code.
Thomas then implemented another solution, so the controller logic had
changed, but when a code update was done on the live server the contact
form view was in a state of conflict and thus was not the latest one
from the codebase, and thus is would fail when someone tried to submit
feedback. That's my understanding of the situation. Moral of the story -
let's NEVER modify code directly on the live server...
